Kanye West: I'm the New Michael Jackson

Kanye West is convinced that if anyone should be crowned the next 'King of Pop', it should be him. Kanye believes that he's so talented, he can fill the void that Michael Jackson left, and wants a new title ASAP.

He tells Scrape TV, "You know everyone loves and respects Michael but times change. It's so sad to see Michael gone but it makes a path for a new King of Pop and I'm willing to take that on. There's nobody who can match me in sales and in respect so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael's crown and become the new King.

"First there was Elvis (Presley), then there was Michael, now in the 21st century it's Kanye's time to rule. I am the new King of Pop."

Wow Kanye, don't hold anything back now. Sounds like someone's head has finally got too big to fit through doorways. While we'll agree that Kanye is an amazing talent, he's nowhere near Michael Jackson status.

If anyone has the potential to one day take on the 'King of Pop' title, it's going to be Justin Timberlake, not Kanye West. Justin has been singing, dancing and performing since he was a little boy, Kanye has only been in the scene for a few years.

How do you feel about Kanye's claims? Do you think there will ever be another "King of Pop?" If so, who is most likely to take on that prestigious title? Kanye West or Justin Timberlake? Tell us your thoughts!
